If this experience proves successful, it can lead directly to a permanent position on our teams.
ENGINEERING AND TECHNICAL RESOURCES DIVISION JOB ROTATION PROGRAM
This outstanding opportunity targets young engineers on their first permanent contract for a technical position at head office. This opportunity is provided by the engineering and technical resources division, which is involved in the design and technical support phases of construction projects.
For a period ranging from about 18 months to 2 years, program participants work on different key positions (structures, pricing and methods) before joining a project site in a technical support or construction role.
Testimony of Caroline, design engineer:
“After six months as an apprentice and a year and a half as an engineering coordinator, I embarked on the Engineering and Technical Resources Division (DIMT) job rotation program. This internal training program takes you through the three main technical components of civil engineering and public works: structural design, methods, and cost estimates. You rotate from one department to another about every six months. It’s a tremendously formative program that usually meets trainees’ expectations and gives you time to delve into the subject matter in depth.
I’m currently working in structural design, where I check the dimensioning and plans issued by an American engineering firm for the Atlantic Bridge project in Panama, in particular for the central span of the cable-stayed bridge.
My immediate future is well laid out. I’ll finish the DIMT program: after structural design, it will be methods and cost estimates. My objective is then to make use of this multidisciplinary know-how in horizontal functions, such as project management.”
